    As the first official price cut for Sony's handheld device, the core PSP package has been slashed by $30 to an MSRP of $169.99.


    PS: Yeah SSBB is far far far from being a fanboy.

    Thank you very much.

    Those vids are great, thanks for those as well. I'm definitely considering adding the PSP to my entourage of gameboys.

So no matter how many units the wii sells, its not kicking anyones butts because its in a whole different ball game.
    I heard somebody else made a statement close to this and i disagreed with them and i will tell you why i do... You could be meaning good or bad by this. but last time i check nintendo is a gaming company so that means they are in the race. Each of those 3 companys have different specialities. mircosoft is a computers. Sony specialize in Electronic and nintendo is strickly gaming. But even though they all have specialities, they still are each others competetion and they can break or make the other. So stop saying that the wii is not in the same ball game. the developers will choice between those three, which cases them to be in the same race, regardless of who has a fancy controller or high graphics or good internet support... so that's my only problem with that mainly. it is their competetior. But i do agree that is a good system to buy along with the others but it can also be vice versa. think about it.

IT'S A GAME FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
    the thing that rlly annoys me is him calling Nintendo kiddie. just becuz it does hav a large 10nd under consumer base many teens and adults can enjoy it just as much. this guy is the only hater here. its that kind of talk that will turn older buyers away from a system. this is what will make my parents tell me "thats 2 kiddy". Shameful sony.

    i dont see how a kiddy system could have MK:armageddon, manhunt2, some other m rated games. i trip out when people say its kiddy.

    wait where does he say nintendo is kiddy? It seems to me that a lot of people are putting intent where none was clearly stated. Jumping to conclusions?

    theres nothing wrong towards marketing to the younger audiences, thats how mcdonalds became the superpower it is.

    I think he's referring to remarks like when he says something like, "When I see people with the PSP in their hands, they're 20 year olds; but, when I see the DS, it's generally being handled by a kid." He doesn't say it directly, but he does hint towards it.

    *EDIT*

    A couple of quotes where he's indirectly saying this:

We've always felt that people want to be like their older brother; they don't want to be like a little kid.

    But isnt he referring to being suprised when he finds kids playing the PSP? I think its concerning the marketing tactics and buying habbits of parents. I did not read it as him saying anything bad about nintendo at all, in fact he said he admires nintendos ability to target audiences at multipul angles. Meaning everybody, where sony is just focusing on one group at a time.

    One of the things that I always admired about Nintendo, with its portable strategy, is that they could attack the consumer from many angles. They aren't just in the console business; they're in the portable business.
    then hes asked the question by the interviewer: GP: I've been seeing more kids with PSPs, which surprises me (it's expensive). People are still out there buying the PSP. That says a lot.

    Then he responds with

    But we'll soon start the second phase, where we reach down to the teen market, and ultimately to the younger consumer [with the PSP]. But if you try to be everything to everybody from day one, you'll alienate a significant portion of the population. When I look at people in the street, it isn't surprising for me to see somebody in his twenties playing a PSP. I am surprised to see a little kid playing a PSP. Conversely, I've never really seen many adults playing [the DS], but I see a lot of little kids. We've always felt that people want to be like their older brother; they don't want to be like a little kid.
    I dunno about you, but i saw this as him talking about how they view the market in terms of strategy. Hes saying that from what he sees, and i have to agree, that he does not see a lot of adults playing the DS in public. He is not suprised when he sees kids playing the DS, but is suprised when he finds Kids playing the PSP. And vice versa, it shows how hes viewing how the marketing tactics are playing out. He states that they do intend to target younger audiences. Kids are a huge market, but its how the general market views the product. Obviously parents are viewing the DS as a kid safe product, however hes suprised because it seems like some also see the PSP that way before Sony even marketed towards them.

    What the hell is that supposed to mean? Im far from being a hater. I dont hate on any system, but i do come under attack a lot. Your post for example proves this. Why bother saying you wont say anything when you just did. The pot calling the kettle black.
